About this book

Please note that our stock is the last that the publisher could give us. Once exhausted, this book will be out of print indefinitely.

Lundy Lichens introduces the visitor to the wealth of beautiful lichens on this small island. They provide colour, pattern and texture on coastal rocks and cliffs, heathland, walls, ruins, gravestones, quarries and trees. Lichens flourish in Lundy's clean air and undisturbed environment.

Over fifty colour photographs accompany the descriptions of selected lichens grouped in community habitats. A map is provided to guide the visitor to habitats indicated in the text so as to aid in discovering and identifying these lichens. An illustrated glossary is included giving definitions of basic lichenological terms. Background information explains what a lichen is. Lichens, as pioneers, are vital in the colonisation of bare surfaces and also indicate environmental change.

For the enthusiast, use of a hand lens will be rewarding. This will reveal more of the detail of these fascinating life-forms and hopefully encourage many to pursue their interest more deeply.
